*This morning's Advent bag included a note telling them that tonight would be, "hot chocolate in the stroller while walking to see Christmas lights". They loved it and I feel badly that this is the first time we've done it this season. It will need to be repeated. :)
*We are celebrating Christmas with my parents on the actual day this year. Among other dishes, my contribution (and most important of the meal) will be this Chocolate Truffle Pie. I made it a long time ago and my dad could not stop talking about it. It's really rich and good.
After Christmas we'll head up to Chris' parents where my contribution will be a dessert I have never tried but looks amazing.
*The other night I let Kendall drink way too much so close to bed. Upon entering her room in the morning and discovering she big time leaked through her diaper, she insisted that she had just "sweat a lot". I wasn't in the mood to argue so "sweating a lot" it was :). Sidenote: Even when she doesn't drink a lot right before bed, she still wakes up with a full diaper. Underwear at night still seems to be in the distant future. :(
p.s. Two of my friends were grossed out by my black bean cake I posted about. However after having them try a bite, they both agreed you could not taste the beans in the slightest. :)
